The birds are back. One of the side effects of being an brave ocean going sailor on another person's boat is that your own boat gets neglected. And the squatters move in. I have birds again.
This has happened before. And I won, albeit with a LOT of guilt as to how I won. But I'm not at that point yet, the nest was obviously still being built. So I dispatched of it, took some bungees and tightened down my sailcover to an uncomfortable level and crossed my fingers.
I have to think about how far I am willing to go in this battle. My boat isn't being useful. I rarely get to sail her. Why shouldn't some birds enjoy Lady Bug? If I can figure out a way they can nest in the sail cover without hurting my sail, what's the danger?
